Reviews

The introduction and five essays in this anthology consider the Bosnian war from the viewpoint of the theoretical "just war" tradition. Well-known theorists such as Paul Ramsey and Michael Walzer find little moral validity in Serbian justifications for the war and much cause for condemnation. Readers may find great value in the book's parenthetical themes, including use of the "Kosovo myth" as a pretext for genocide, the moral problem of siege warfare in a "just war," and the Muslim critique of Western rationality as a source of war. Nevertheless, the anthology suffers for the absence of a conclusion or documentary appendixes. A more comprehensive view emerges from This Time We Knew: Western Responses to Genocide in Bosnia (LJ 10/1/96). Recommended for larger university libraries and specialized collections.
